A record number of 789 projects from 53 countries has been submitted to the Brick Award 22. The 10th Brick Award has had the highest number of entries in its history, demonstrating the internationality of this architecture prize. The selection for the 50 shortlisted projects in the five categories took place in summer.

Five categories are assigned to the Brick Award, within each of them a category price will be awarded, next to the overall winner. The winning projects in those five categories “Feeling at home”, “Living together”, “Sharing public spaces”, “Working together” and “Building outside the box” as well as the overall winner of the Award will be announced at the official Brick Award ceremony in Vienna, June 2022.

For the Brick Award 22 we observed a strong European focus, 34 of the 50 shortlisted projects having been submitted by European architects, 12 coming from Asian bureaus and 4 Latin American nominations.

“The development of recent years continues, the focus remains on resource-efficient construction. This concerns both highly innovative structures as well as those built in the traditional way with local materials and craft techniques. Re-use is just as present as the imaginative use of bricks. This almost playful approach leads to concise , memorable designs. The weighting of the different categories is almost balanced, showing that brick is represented in all building typological areas.” explains Heimo Scheuch, CEO of Wienerberger AG.

More in detail, the shortlisted projects are allocated to the following categories :
Feeling at home: 8 projects
Living together: 12 projects
Sharing public spaces: 13 projects
Working together: 8 projects
Building outside the box: 9 projects
